A 32-year-old man is facing a DUI charge after a fluid trail from a crash site led police to him. The Tennessee resident and facilities manager of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration was charged with drunk driving and operating a motor vehicle without a license.

A trail of fluid leaking from the vehicle made the search easy.

Many students use college as a time to go a little wild. Too often, this desire to let loose and go wild involves going to parties and drinking in excess. Unfortunately, as many Tennessee college students discovered, these choices can lead to a variety of troubles, including some that could make life difficult in the future.

While driving down the road, it can be easy to misinterpret common driver errors as drunk driving.

Throughout the school year, thousands of Tennessee students ride the school bus each day.

At the end of an illustrious career, a person may dream of leaving the position with some honor and dignity. It is a time to look back with pride on accomplishments and contributions that may benefit the industry for years to come.

For one Tennessee public servant, however, the exit may be more bitter than sweet following his drunk driving arrest.
When a Tennessee driver is involved in an accident, he or she can usually expect to face many consequences and complications. There will likely be the bother of car repairs and higher insurance rates, which may seem pale if someone is injured in the crash. Perhaps complicating the situation even more is when the injured party is a police officer. One man is charged with drunk driving after an accident involving a patrol car.
Because of the potential dangers involved when a driver is impaired, the courts in Tennessee and other states typically impose harsher penalties after a conviction if children were involved in a DUI incident. In fact, in some situations, a simple DUI can quickly become a felony if a minor was in the vehicle. One local man was fortunate to have avoided an accident, but he now faces drunk driving charges complicated by the presence of his child in the vehicle.
